views, i wouldn't have made a dime and probably would be practicing law at a small midtown firm. because i was mostly long or owned stock during the period of the greatest advance i can tell you, in confidence, guess what, it's -- it's off the record. off the record. we're off the record, right? i did pretty well. nonetheless, somehow i believe that had there been a twitterati 30 years ago, i bet i would have been roundly criticized every step of the way for not knowing the true negatives, for whistling past the graveyard, for not doing my homework, for being oblivious to the really horrifying concerns out there. 30 years later, the exact same conversation takes place online @jimcramer on twitter, join it, every day. even though i'm by no means as bullish, i've been accused of being ignorant of every positive out there. same thing happens in my back and forth every day with very smart people who are forever trying to con -- i mean, get me to become more negative. now, in case some of you think i'm a perma-bull, please remember in 2008 when i told people to sell stocks at dow 10,000. fort
